Leitchfield City Council hears from "green-minded" students

Louisville business man Mike Elmore spoke to the Leitchfield City Council on Monday night about his interest in leasing the Alexander Hotel.

Elmore presented the council with a business proposal, which will be discussed once the body has read the document, most likely at the next scheduled council meeting on April 21.

Lisa Skaggs, a teacher at Grayson County High School, leads a group of students at the high school who wish to make Grayson County a “greener place.” Skaggs presented several high school students to the council who will be working this year on making Grayson a greener county.

Skaggs told the council her students will challenge each club and organization at the high school to participate in the city’s Annual Roadside Litter Cleanup Event on Saturday, April 12 from 8 - Noon.

Skaggs said the group would publicize the event on their web site and around the school via posters.

Skaggs further noted that every year a group of green-minded students present some form of green practice to businesses that each business could easily participate in. This year their theme is to encourage and help businesses recycle ink cartridges.

The group has a web site – GoGreenGrayson.com.

Tourism Director Ilsa Johnson reported that the new Aquatic Center has hired “18 to 20 lifeguards,” and “eight to 10 concession workers.” The water park is scheduled to open in July.

Ralph Harrison was nominated and confirmed as the newest member of the Grayson County Airport Board, replacing Kevin Henderson, who stepped down. Harrison’s term runs through December 2016.
